Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is sure that the war in Ukraine can be ended only by diplomatic means, and sanctions against Russia should be maintained until peace is restored, ONA reports citing Ukrinform.
He said this during a speech at the 16th Yalta European Strategy (YES) Annual Meeting in Kyiv on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Those who bravely defend Ukraine should return as winners. We must put an end to the war and return our territories. But I have repeatedly said that diplomacy is the only way to achieve this, and its powerful and effective weapon is sanctions," the president stressed.
